How to Trade In a Car

Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman

Are you getting ready to trade in your car in the St Cloud area? If you’ve never done so before, you probably have a few questions about how it works. Here at Morrie's Auto Connection, we make the trade-in process easy and hassle-free. Start by valuing your trade online for an idea of how much it’s worth, then visit our St Cloud location to let our experienced team take it from there! 

If you’re planning a trade in the future and are just looking for some general information for now, you can learn more about how to trade in your car below.

Get Your Trade-In Car Value

As we mentioned above, the first step of the trade-in process is to learn how much your car is worth. If you’re using our online trade-in calculator, simply enter your car’s information, the VIN, and your contact info, and receive an estimated trade-in offer soon after! If you would like to compare the offer with other sources, you can also value your trade using trusted resources like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Get an Official Appraisal

When you value your trade online, it’s merely an estimate based on your car’s history and condition, as well as data for how much cars like yours have sold for recently. The online estimates are typically very accurate, but you will still need to get your car appraised at the dealership to receive an official offer. After examining your car’s condition and quality and considering our own used inventory, we’ll extend an official offer that could be a little different than the one you got online. Feel free to bring in any trade-in estimates you received for our team’s reference. 

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

After having your vehicle appraised and receiving an offer, you can accept it or see if there’s room to negotiate. The whole process can be completed in one visit to our dealership, which is just one of the advantages of trading in your car vs. selling it yourself in Albertville. 

How to Trade in Your Car: What to Bring to the Dealership

As we mentioned, one benefit of trading in your car instead of selling it privately in Rogers is that the whole transaction can be done in one visit to the dealership. But that depends on you bringing all of the proper information when you’re ready to trade in your car, including: 

  • Driver’s license
  • Car title and registration
  • Proof of insurance 
  • Maintenance records or a history report (if you have them)
  • Car key(s)
